"I love the people and places I saw working for DOD. They helped to create the man I am today and to inspire me to better myself and dive headlong into the sciences, for which I am passionate."

"I have worked for the Federal Government for 3 years and I love my job. But, there is not a lot of room for advancement unless you are an officer."

"Take this with a grain of salt, my experience is limited to one particular office of one building of one agency under the Department of Defense. I found the work very limited as in you were given such a small piece of the puzzle, that the solution was trivial and required no brain power. I think that environment is not a good place for a young career professional, not enough opportunities to learn and grow. Very flexible work schedule, though that varies by office so ask before going with that. Overall, not recommended for young professionals."

"I have worked for the Department of Defense for eight years, and find the majority of DoD Finance/Resource Managers outstanding, hardworking, extremely ethical individuals. By contrast, after two years in Defense Intelligence Agency, I find the majority of the senior leadership in the COCOM to be the exact opposite when it comes to financial accountability and ethics."

in Fort Meade, MD

"I have been with the Department of Defense since 1997 - it has changed quite a lot in that time. In my area, the stress can be very high, with little visibility and recognition. Sometimes this is very disheartening and the work doesn't seem worth the heartburn. However, the people you will meet are pretty amazing."

"Joining the military was the best thing I have ever done. They have taught valuable skills and have taught me to appreciate everything in life. I appreciate every opportunity that has been given to me. The military has made me an exceptional hard worker and have given me the ability to adjust to any situation. Trouble shooting and attention to details is second nature to me. I love my job and love my country."
